Community Engagement SCHEDULE – SEPTEMBER 2020
WCC is seeking feedback on the Draft Spatial Plan (closing date for submissions 5 October 2020)
There are two convenient opportunities to engage directly with Council officers at community pop-ups:
Wednesday 2 September, 10am-2pm in Post Office Square, City – cancelled due to weather conditions
This event has been rescheduled and moved to:
Central City – Te Awe Library
29 Brandon Street
Tuesday, 8 September 2020
For information about Wellington’s temporary Library, which opened in mid-July, visit:
Saturday 12 September, 9am-1pm at the Hill Street Farmers Market, Thorndon
On Saturday 12th September there will now be two opportunities to engage with WCC officers.
Besides the pop-up scheduled for Thorndon there will be a brief one, 90 minutes at Te Papa : Level 4, 12:00pm to 1:30pm
The spatial plan underpins key policy directions. It influences zoning and the District Plan and guides Council’s investment in transport, community facilities, infrastructure, etc.
The draft Spatial Plan suggests potential significant changes for parts (or all) of Thorndon e.g.
proposed change from Inner Residential to Central Area District Plan zone.

The map below shows the extent of ‘eastern’ Thorndon proposed to be re-zoned as ‘Central Area’.
Thorndon is NZ’s oldest suburb. It has been carefully planned as an ‘inner city’ suburb and this has helped maintain the special feel of the place, at the gateway into city.
